oh masser! how horrible and i cant even begin to guess how terrifying. ya know i,return to a fear of return but never to such an extensive level. i have had few cancers but not like yours at all. so to say i know what you are going thru is an understatemnt my income is protected, so in that way i am very fortunate. but beyond that, the only thing that survies is that i have been humbled by them and lent to: how importantt is it (<---fill in the blank) if it were me, i would be screaming and ranting and raging and trying to laugh: i always think, what's the alternative? whoah!

I was first diagnosed with breast cancer in my left breast in 2005. Had a lumpectomy followed by radiation and tamoxifin for 5 years. In April I went for my annual mammogram, and it showed a new shadow in my right breast. On May 3rd I had a bilateral mastectomy, and still have drains in my sides. I don't know if I will need any further treatment this time. My surgeon says I won't but I'm still waiting to see an oncologist.
I always thought getting through 5 years cancer free meant it wouldn't return. But then I heard about several women who had it return after 8 years. So now that's where I fit.
I'm not having reconstruction- what would be the point? I still have stitches, so I can't really tell what I truly look like breastless, but I am getting used to it, and liking being breastfree.
